Bar Soap!

Home Storage (year supply) can be pretty! 

I took all my boxed soaps off my storage shelf and put them on display! 
I will be adding it to my master bath. 
I use crocheted "soap socks" I make for my shower. 
No more shower gel for me!
I love that I have gone back to using bar soap again.

I have all my supplies to start making my own soap too!
I love the gentleness and smell of them.
I bought the large glass container at Hobby Lobby.
It's rather large and holds a years supply!

Do you use bar soap or make it?

I'm a bar soap girl myself Maryjane. I would love to make my own someday too. My mom tells me stories about how her mother's soap would take the hide right off with the dirt :)
I love how you have displayed yours! So pretty!

We use soap bars all the time, I only buy liquid when company comes but now I will put them in a soap sock.

My Muzzie used to have bar soap in crystal jars or hurricane lamps.

I use bar soap, Maryjane. I just can't seem to get into using those bath gels or liquid soap. Love the idea of your soap socks though. I have been using the ORIGINAL Lever 2000 and someone will invariably ask me, "What are you wearing?" It is such a nice, clean fresh scent.

We use shower gel now but I'm thinking I might convert my herd back to bar soap. I do love the smell of bar soap even when it's just sitting on the shelf. You have inspired me Maryjane! :) I've been curious about organic soap making. I'm experimenting with linen sprays right now and having fun mixing scents.

I seem to have a love affair with soap and it's handmade all the way! It's all I use anymore. If I had more room in my bath I would display them too.

I am a bar soap kind of gal too Maryjane. I love the looks of it and I have a jar full of it in my guest bath upstairs. Little bars sit on a heart shaped mirror alongside the tub in our master bath. I like how you have mixed yours!

I like handmade bar soap and have my bars in an open bowl. I love the wonderful scents! And love your display! Hugs, Diane

Such a great idea to display your soaps

Your soap soak is adorable!!! Does it dry out after each use? Does the soap get mushy inside? (I am assuming you just leave the bar of soap inside all the time until it is used up).
